Foxes look strong for Derby clash
Bulgarian defender Aleksandar Tunchev remains the only absentee for the Foxes as he recovers from another knee operation. Prior to the international break, Pearson made five changes for the game at Middlesbrough and then stuck with the same XI against Coventry after seeing his side record their first away win of the season at the Riverside. Following the 1-1 draw with the Sky Blues, Pearson could name the same starting line-up for the third straight Championship match. However, the likes of midfielder Richie Wellens and strikers Steve Howard and Martyn Waghorn, who combined so well for the Foxes equalising goal at the Ricoh Arena within minutes of coming off the bench, are pushing strongly for recalls. City striker Paul Dickov, who is on loan at Derby, is ineligible to play against his parent club.
